D.A.R.E to Resist Tote Bag


Drug Abuse Resistance Education (D.A.R.E.) is an education program that seeks to prevent use of controlled drugs, membership in gangs, and violent behavior. It was founded in Los Angeles in 1983 as a joint initiative of then-LAPD chief Daryl Gates and the Los Angeles Unified School District[1][non-primary source needed] as a demand-side drug control strategy of the American War on Drugs.
